Deniliquin residents invited to 'Our Place'

21 JANUARY 2014

Charles Sturt University (CSU) researchers are inviting Deniliquin district residents with an interest in protecting the natural environment and encouraging sustainable living to a community forum on Monday 3 February. The meeting is the first of several activities within the 'Our Place' project, which is resourced by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. Project leader Dr Helen Masterman-Smith said the event aimed to share knowledge of existing activities in the district and discuss ways that the project resources can assist them. "We will use the results of the meeting to develop a community survey that will provide a clearer picture of residents' practices, such as use of water tanks and vegetable gardens, and how much they know about the special features of the district's natural environment, as well as their interests, concerns, views and ideas." The initial community meeting will be held from 5.45pm to 7.30pm in the Meeting Room at the Deniliquin RSL Club. Dr Masterman-Smith said, "It's a terrific opportunity for the district's local communities to learn more about what is happening in their area, to boost existing initiatives and generate new activities." For more information or to register for the meeting, contact Dr Helen Masterman-Smith on (02) 6051 9190 or send her an email.
